Exploring possible futures

The Rebond Man­agers’ Fair 2022 was held on Feb­ru­ary 3–4, 2022 in the for­mat “webi­na­rs”. The theme cho­sen was: Take the risk, explore your pro­fes­sion­al tran­si­tion! Are you about to change your career path or are you think­ing about it? What­ev­er your sit­u­a­tion, the Rebond Man­ager’s Fair helps you move the fron­tier lines.

With the help of the Hauts-de-France Region, the Con­seil départe­men­tal de l’Oise, the Aggloméra­tion de la Région de Com­piègne, Pôle Emploi and Apec, UTC organ­ised a new edi­tion of the Rebond Man­agers’ Fair. This event was expect­ed to be a bridge of exchange enabling con­nec­tions to be estab­lished between the var­i­ous play­ers in the employ­ment ser­vice and exec­u­tives in pro­fes­sion­al tran­si­tion or with tran­si­tion projects. At the heart of the rich pro­gramme, the large num­ber of reg­is­tered par­tic­i­pants were able to dis­cov­er the orig­i­nal and inno­v­a­tive “Tal­ents & Tran­si­tions Patch­work®” method unveiled by David John Bourne, work psychologist. 

“This method allows you to revis­it the activ­i­ties that make up your pro­fes­sion­al and extra-pro­fes­sion­al expe­ri­ences with the aim of eval­u­at­ing them through three prisms: the inter­est in each of the iden­ti­fied activ­i­ties, the feel­ing of per­son­al effec­tive­ness expe­ri­enced in each of them and the rel­a­tive impor­tance of each of them with regard to the time you devote to them. The aim of the method is to enable you to iden­ti­fy new pro­fes­sion­al activ­i­ties that will bet­ter cor­re­spond to your deep­est aspi­ra­tions,” he explained at the exhi­bi­tion to those who were won­der­ing about their pro­fes­sion­al orientation. 

Perspective of a co-construction 

The mobil­i­sa­tion of this socio-con­struc­tivist method authored by David John Bourne is increas­ing­ly used by career devel­op­ment pro­fes­sion­als. The method has been the sub­ject of var­i­ous pre­sen­ta­tions at inter­na­tion­al pro­fes­sion­al con­fer­ences. As a prac­ti­tion­er-researcher in career devel­op­ment coach­ing, this expert uses this method on a dai­ly basis, gen­er­al­ly in addi­tion to the Jun­gian typo­log­i­cal approach. 

“In France, recent leg­is­la­tion has led prac­ti­tion­ers to accom­pa­ny increas­ing­ly diverse groups of peo­ple at dif­fer­ent stages of their lives, with com­plex prob­lems that reflect a con­stant­ly chang­ing world. Con­struc­tivist approach­es con­ceive of pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment from a glob­al per­spec­tive where, on the one hand, work and pri­vate life are close­ly linked and, on the oth­er hand, where the indi­vid­ual is con­sid­ered as the true expert of his or her life capa­ble of active­ly con­struct­ing his or her pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment,” he added. 

Many Fonge­cif coun­sel­lors have been trained in the past years, as well as coun­sel­lors from var­i­ous CIBCs and GRE­TAs in France. Prac­ti­tion­ers have also been trained in the Czech Repub­lic and there are plans to train some in Que­bec next year. Else­where, it is peo­ple who car­ry out a skills assess­ment who ben­e­fit from the con­tri­bu­tions of this par­tic­u­lar­ly effec­tive method.
